My name is Emma and I will be playing one of the Laker girls in SMP’s production of Spamalot. This is my first ever blog… eek! And my first show with SMP…even bigger eek!
I have seen many SMP shows in the past and have found myself beaming from ear to ear throughout so I thought why not take part. As a newbie I had no idea what to expect but rehearsals so far have been super fun with lots of giggles along the way and the cast have been extremely welcoming, they really are one big ‘SPAM‘ fam!
Monday’s rehearsal saw us briefly recapping our tricky ‘ah’ harmonies with our talented pianist Alex before we learnt another fantastic routine to ‘Find your grail’ (or in this rehearsal find your umbrella or wooden stick) choreographed by the wonderful Fay.
There’s a lot going on in this number and the knights were busy shaking their thing while Haydn filled in for our lovely lady of the lake as you can see below: But it all came together nicely and the number looks great as you can see: And we all left rehearsal just as happy as Sir Bedevere (David Bowman) being lifted in the air by Sir Lancelot (Warren).
On Wednesday we had another singing rehearsal with our fabulous MD Stuart where we learnt ‘Knights of the round table’ and ‘All for one’.
And also sang a lot about Jam!
Some of our Knights also got their hands on their hands on their helmets which fitted to varying degrees!
I’m very lucky to have joined such a lovely company for such a fab show. With songs that’ll make you want to get up and dance or howl with laughter it’s a show not to be missed!
We can’t wait so don’t miss out!
